ABOUT THIS APPLICATION: (some things may appear different if registering on your phone; not recommended)
You'll need to submit a maximum 100-word description (approx. 600 characters) for the website and promotions. Or you can tell us to use your previous description. Please describe what you will be offering at your booth during the Expo.
When done with the application, hit the "Submit Application" button. After that, the page where you filled out the form should be blank.
After hitting the "Submit Application" button, IF the page is still there and doesn't go to the Paypal page, then there is likely an error in your application. You may see an error message at the bottom that says "Please fill in required fields" if you missed a required question; or you may not, if it's a different problem. Either way, scroll back up the form to find a required question that was not filled out or not filled out properly. (OFTEN it is because you have gone over the 600-character limit in your description.) Answer or fix, and then submit again.
Once you successfully fill out and submit the form, you'll be automatically taken to a Paypal page. Your total registration amount will be given there.
No Paypal account is needed to pay at Paypal; YOU MAY PAY ONLINE WITH A DEBIT OR CREDIT CARD. At the bottom right of the Paypal box, you may select “Pay with a debit or credit card” instead of using a Paypal account.
Sorry, no checks allowed. Fee must be paid in full with application.
If you have successfully paid online at Paypal after submitting the application, you'll receive an email confirmation message. Please check your spam and other email folders for this confirmation message.
IF YOU DON'T PAY ONLINE, YOU WILL NOT get an automatic confirmation email. If you experience problems with paying or submitting the form, please contact Britni, the Vendor Coordinator, at (734) 658-7958. We can accept your credit card or debit card information over the phone, along with your zip code.
NEW: Sunday hours are extended to 6:00 PM! (Booths must remain open until closing time or risk not being invited back.)
NO REFUNDS unless your application is denied.
PROMOTION: We list all vendors on our website, on a Facebook post, and on a list given to attendees at the Expo.
NEW! SPONSORSHIP: We now offer Sponsorship Opportunities that can increase the visibility of your business at the Expo! There are various levels of perks, depending upon the monetary donation, from being included on the At-a-Glance handout to exclusive sponsorship of a physical area of the Expo. Please see the link below to download the Sponsorship document for more information.
LOCATION OPTIONS at Skyline: Commons Area or "Small Wall" Space.
Small Wall booths are in the halls and would be the first seen. They are smaller and cheaper booths; no electricity access. Small Wall vendors may affix signs to the wall behind them, but only blue painter's tape is allowed. (We recommend light-weight paper for the signs, as heavy or coated paper signs will not stay up with tape.) Small Wall single booths are 6' deep x 8' wide and Double Small Wall Booths are 6' deep x 16' wide.
Single Commons Area booths are 10' deep x 8' wide; there are also a limited number of 8' deep x 10' wide available. Double Commons Area booths are 10' deep x 16' wide.
READINGS: Vendors cannot offer readings at their booths. This is to preserve the integrity of the Reader Rooms. You can apply for an exception, if you offer something UNUSUAL that cannot conform to our 20-minute and 30-minute Reader Room procedures. If approved to offer readings, the READING COST CANNOT BE LESS than what our Reader Room charges, $1.50/minute. Please contact Britni at email@example.com to apply for an exception.
Booths are not to be shared by two unrelated companies. You may each purchase a single booth separately and ask to be placed next to each other. We also offer cheaper "Small Wall" booths that are very affordable for small vendors.
Electricity access is available for an additional $10 charge, in Commons booths only. (We are being charged by Skyline for electricity usage.)
Vendors/bodyworkers must bring their own tables and chairs; Skyline does not have enough of these for everyone's use.
Anyone primarily offering bodywork/energy work should apply instead as a Bodyworker. Bodyworkers are encouraged to bring a helper to take appointments while you are working and to explain what you offer.
VOLUNTEER PRIZE DONATION: We're asking everyone to donate a gift certificate or product to reward our volunteers. Gift certificates should be for full free offers — no coupons or discounts. If you are donating a product instead of a gift certificate, products should be chosen by you (instead of giving us a certificate asking the recipient choose), because sometimes the certificates are received too late for the volunteer to go to your booth. ALL donations should be brought to us at the Volunteer Office or given to the Vendor Coordinator or Vendor Assistant who make the rounds of the booths, so that we can allocate the right amount of certificates to cover our volunteers each day. PLEASE DO NOT GIVE YOUR DONATION DIRECTLY TO VOLUNTEERS unless these are "extra" donations, to reward a volunteer who has helped you, separate from the donation you give to the Volunteer Office. We will have blank certificates at the Expo for you to fill out, or feel free to bring your own. Thank you for helping to support our hard-working volunteers!
Please do not light candles or incense, diffuse oils or sprays into the air, or use anything else scented — to respect those who have allergies or sensitivities. Demonstrations may be done only when visitors request or with the express permission of ALL your vendor neighbors (behind as well as on the sides and in front). WHEN IN DOUBT, please ask permission from the Vendor Coordinator.
For those who wish to stay overnight in Ann Arbor, blocks of hotel rooms will be arranged for Expo weekend.
